that we have read, that technology and the enhanced use of auto maition and technology have been a recurring theme for the department of building and inspection and i didn't see any emphasis and there was no mention of that in terms of the budget or at least not with any emphasis, i also note having red last year's grand jury report that the city has a very, very poor track record of implementing technology and yet, it seems to have been established that you know, hand held devices in the field, and better coordination of records from different departments that there are a wide variety of ways that technology could improve the efficiency of the staff, and the customer service, if you will. so i wondered, where that is in the budget, and what safe guards that the technology could be properly implemented. >> thank you. >> hi, again, robert, i was just wondering about the comments of the open notices of violation. and my question is how are the down stream effects not relevant? the permits that are applied for the inspection fees, the reinspection fees? i mean, if you look at the ja
. there are people and technology that say this is a place they want to be. entrepreneurs say this is where they want to be. when companies like facebook are started at an institution like harvard and a pier, you start to recognize why this is so special and fiber and why innovation is a bleeding heart economy. so let me try to give some brief introductions about our panel today. i have to confess, i only just met one of our panelists, lee said dyson, the ceo of coverity. she got a ph.d. in physics from mit but felt the urge to come out here to california and she did her research at stanford and lawrence berkeley. that is an indication we are getting smart people like her out to california to start companies like hers. 15 employees in 2008. it is interesting, we talk about cloud computing and these technology companies, but she takes electronic waste that is rich in carbon and recycles that into oil for plastics and a variety of other things. i wish i had more time to talk to you and get to know you because i am sure there's an interesting story that you will really enjoy hearing from her. you have a
people are coming back and saying this is a really breakthrough technology and these are great but it's just the american way. you have the ability of anyone to come up with an idea and expose it. that is why we have this event. the big companies respect that we have the small companies there and that is how we run this organization. >> host: where do you see growth in consumer electronics in the next couple of years? >> guest: there are growth in several categories. sometimes categories go through a lull and the rise. we had the video area that went through a lull but it's getting back with connected to be in very thin tv so that's exciting. other areas of standing wireless. the fcc changed -- chairman made a huge announcement. that's only for wifi but all sorts of products that you can envision and the first-grade product they came from unlicensed spectrum garage door opener and accord cordless phone and baby monitor. these were things no one anticipated. it's getting pretty crowded here especially at airports and it's tough to see your wifi so that's great. biometric sensing clearl
? is there a bubble? >> i would like to speak about the clean technology sector. there was a little bit of a bubble that emerged in 2005, 2006, 2007 time frame. what has happened since then is you see the landscape changed. there have been a lot of companies and vc's, founders, that are focused on very few investments in companies but are in it for the long run. the time and invested it takes to build a clean tech company. the difference with clean tech, there might be large facilities required, investment to build your first plant, for instance. we are seeing a change in the landscape. one thing i want to add, too, for clean tech, there are organizations like the clean tech opened that foster innovation and identify and help on to produce with that system, present their idea, put together their business plan, attract the mentors and advisers to help them build their technology. the incubators are contributing to a maturing clean tech and biotech sector -- sector. >> just a short comment. we focus in this building, a research center, on technology. some of it is near term, some of it is very long t

that outworn programs are inadequate to the needs of our time. so we must harness new ideas and technology to remake our government, revamp our tax code, reform our schools, and empower our citizens with the skills they need to work harder, learn more, reach higher. but while the means will change, our purpose endures: a nation that rewards the effort and determination of every single american. that is what this moment requires. that is what will give real meaning to our creed. we, the people, still believe that every citizen deserves a basic measure of security and dignity. we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future.(applause) for we remember the lessons of our past, when twilight years were spent in poverty and parents of a child with a disability had nowhere to turn. we do not believe that in this country freedom is reserved for the lucky, or happiness for the few. we reco
policing using both data and technology to help us do that. and then, of course, i think the most important part is to organize our communities and work with community-based organizations, families, religious groups, and everybody that's on the ground to find more ways to intervene in violent behavior out there and utilize resources such as education systems, our community jobs programs, others that might allow people to go in different direction. the unfortunate and very tragic incident in connecticut in sandy hook elementary school of course heightened everybody's awareness of what violence can really be all about. and as we have been not only responding, reacting to this national tragedy that i think president obama has adequately described as broken all of our hearts, and in every funeral that has taken place, for those 20 innocent children and six innocent adults in the school districts, and school administrators, we obviously have shared in that very tragic event, all of us. it has touched everybody across this country. san francisco is no different. and i have shared that emotional e

important using this kind of technology. i like the technology. it's not 100% perfect but we have come a long way to really get to know what our patients are doing. are they compliant? are they really taking? that in the long term, gretchen, can reduce millions of dollars off of our health care costs. >>gretchen: and potentially violent crimes if some of these people are mentally ill and not taking their medications. but here's the problem, and we know this is the rub in the situation, number one, is it ethical? number two, there are so many laws now that protect the rights of the mentally ill, sometimes that super seeds the rights of the individual victim in many of these cases. the court says you can't force these people to take meds. >> unfortunately, that's part of the shortcoming of the system. they have rights, of course. when it comes to serious mental illness, you may have to get a court order to be able to do this. when you talk about psychiatric illnesses, you have bipolar, you have depression, manic. the problem with their medications can really throw them off. schizophrenia

, there aren't technology companies willing to give us free access to internet service is, in my opinion, really almost criminal. because do you think twitter could put out a free wi-fi signal for south of market or for the tenderloin or for place where's there is a lot of low-income people who use services? who could make appointments online and search for health information? so in many opinion. that one thing of getting internet service into low-income communities, where you could get certainly used computers, very inexpensively. i have an older computer, but it's connected to the internet. and quite frankly, right now, i can't afford on my income to have regular internet service. so it requires me draging it to a cafe or somewhere, which does have internet service. why can't the mayor, who is going around to each one of these internet service companies why can't they get together and provide us in the low-income neighborhoods, which they are getting huge tax breaks on, internet service? that would be a huge benefit to me and i'm sure it would be a huge benefit to a lot of other peopl
